Gorgeous linework and watercolor washes by flaf on flickr. Discovered, I believe, via kizioko on tumblr, though I can't find the exact post at the moment.

I really connect with and am inspired by these lovely scientific illustrations by idlethumbs on flickr, discovered via the scientific illustration tumblr.

Oof. It's hard to know when these gaps in posts will happen. I have a ton of inspiring images to share with you, as well as some recipes, but in the last few weeks I've taken a class at the Center for the Book, a weekly extended ed class at the California College of Art, gotten really busy at my full-time job, been volunteering frequently at the Center as well, blogging for the Center, getting into Pinterest (above, more below), and had literally half-a-dozen house-guests all while trying to keep drawing and working on my portfolio. I've been prioritizing my art blog, and will continue to do so, but I am also going to queue up some posts for this blog whenever I can. While I'm still cooking a lot, working full-time means that I'm not usually around when there's the best light in my kitchen (about 10 AM in my opinion) for photographing food, so I don't have much. I've taken some photos -- a wilted spinach salad, my favorite tofu dish, some of my favorite snack and comfort foods -- but the light is no good and some of them are even blurry, so I'll have to wait to share those recipes until I have better pictures. In the meantime, I am working on a post rounding up my favorite recipes from around the internet lately (but this too is more time-intensive than tumbling or posting my favorite artwork, so I don't know when that will be either).
But back to this post! If you're on Pinterest, check me out! There is definitely some overlap with my tumblr and with this blog, but there is also lots of other things that don't quite fit, or that I'm simply using to organize my thoughts for projects or my daydreams for super-unaffordable products.
